Last week thousands of bananas washed up on two Dutch North Sea islands after about a half a dozen containers fell off a cargo ship during a storm. Scattering across a half-mile stretch of beach, thousands of unripe bunches bejeweled the beaches of Terschelling Island, 70 miles north of Amsterdam. Bananas also washed up on neighboring Ameland Island.
Apparently this happens more often then you’d think on the Terschelling beaches. Last year thousands of tennis shoes, aluminum briefcases and children's toys washed ashore, I hope it was Saint Nicholas day.
